With the new materials in today’s dentistry, veneers or bonding can give your smile a lift without invasive treatment. Gaps, chips, or discolored teeth can be repaired with less time and trauma to your teeth.
Veneers are a very popular way of changing the look of your smile. Veneers look and feel like natural teeth and are very long lasting. They are a thin covering that can change the shape and length of our teeth. They are a cure for teeth that are discolored, chipped or have small holes or pits. They can also help to close gaps in misaligned or crooked teeth. Unlike crowns, only a small amount of your tooth is removed causing less trauma to the tooth. Veneers are strong, very durable and do not stain.
Bonding is best used to restore misaligned, decayed, and chipped teeth and/or to change the color of teeth. It is a less expensive and more conservative way to restore a tooth. Bonding is a composite resin filling that can be placed in the back teeth as well as the front. We can also use bonding to close gaps or to change the shape of your teeth. Bonding generally does not last as long as crowns or veneers but is a conservative way to change the appearance of your smile.
